Our second visit there this year and we had the best stay ever. A nice, quiet, and very clean room. As always a convenient location, helpful staff, and a great complimentary breakfast. Can't think of anything that was lacking. We love this place.

The location, right in the heart of much of Gettysburg, is quite convenient, and the idea that the hotel is not a chain is appealing. There's also a pool on the property--something not every Gettysburg hotel has--and the streetside view from the top floor is nice. However, we found the overall feel less than completely welcoming, particularly in the context... More

The 1863 Inn was excellent and a big feature in the enjoyment of our vacation. First of all the location is excellent - walking distance or a short drive to all attractions. It was great to be able to just go out and walk to many of the places we wanted to go. Also the room was beautifully clean every... More

Great location...you can walk anywhere in Gettysburg from here. You can tell this is an older hotel that has been well maintained. The only downside was that the rooms were damp feeling and there was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom due to poor ventilation. Beds were a little too soft for my comfort...could be time for some new... More

This hotel was fine for my husband and 13 year old daughter and myself. It was in a great location (which is why we chose it). Nothing special but reasonable price. Breakfast was very disappointing but other than that it was okay.

My Girlfriend and I had a wonderful time! The rooms were clean and beautiful, the staff was friendly and were very helpful. The lobby was really beautiful! It's a great location because it's right in town, saved me gas money =) If you stay in Gettysburg make sure you check this place out!
